Balint groups need leaders and the Society specialises in training professionals to run groups using the Balint method. As the demand for our leadership training increases, so have the number of opportunities to do so and there is a growing network of trained and accredited leaders who in turn can support and supervise others.

The Balint society has a training programme leading to accreditation as a Balint leader. It is as follows:

  1. Leaders’ training workshops at Balint weekends and leaders training days – see events page
  2. Co-leading a group with an experienced, and accredited leader if possible or leading with supervision.
  3. Having individual supervision about your group from an accredited leader.
  4. Joining a leaders’ peer supervision workshop – see events page.

Supervision can be provided on a personal basis or in a group. It can be face to face or via skype or phone. Supervisors are accredited Balint group leaders.

There is a dedicated leadership team who can be contacted via: leadership@balint.co.uk
